    Default Valerie Bertinelli does not want to be fat shamed

    Her sitcom is back on and she's making the talk show rounds again and she talking about her recent weight gain. Sshe's gained some weight following a foot surgery on New Years Eve...hey I have been there too and know how hard it is when you have injured yourself..especially after a "certain age"

    now the tabloids are sneaking around to get pictures of her obvious weight gain

    but is it fair for her to call it fat shaming when she has been paid quite a bit of cash to be a spokeperson for a weight loss company?

    Isn't it rather disingenuous of her to not recognize that it is somewhat newsworthy (in the celebrity realm anyway) for a weight loss spokesperson to be seen gaining a substantial amount of weight? No one is calling her a bad person, they are just pointing out the irony.

    I still think she looks very good for her age, but I think it is unfair of her to spend literally YEARS telling her public and SELLING her public the idea that with the help of this program she has it all worked out. You don't have to look far to see her quotes about responsible eating and portion control etc etc etc and now that she has deviated from that program in a big way, she doesn't want to be held publicly responsible....no, it's "fat shaming"

    the whole weight maintenance thing is a nightmare, but just as she was happy to be the one on the cover in a bikini touting her new lifestyle, she shouldn't be surprised when her weight gain gets her attention.


    Valerie Bertinelli on Gaining Weight: 'We Need to Take the Shame Out of It'
    04/02/2014 at 04:15 PM EDT





    PEOPLE MAGAZINE

    Valerie Bertinelli is the first to admit it: "I've gained a few pounds."

    After recent photos showcased her curvier figure on the set of her TV Land sitcom Hot in Cleveland, the actress – who famously lost more than 40 lbs. on Jenny Craig and posed in a bikini to prove it – openly discussed her fluctuating waistline with the co-hosts of The Talk on Wednesday.

    "I broke my foot three months ago and the weight starts to creep up," says Bertinelli. "I haven't been able to move. My doctor even told me, 'Do not get your heart rate up.' "

    As she noticed the pounds slowly coming back on, "It started to panic me and panic me. And then I thought, well, wait a minute. This is my body. I'm almost 54. I broke my foot," Bertinelli says. "I started thinking, 'Why do I feel so much shame?' We need to take the shame out of it."

    "We all need to give each other a break – especially women," she adds. "Let's leave each other alone."

    Now as she prepares to celebrate her birthday on April 23, Bertinelli says she has started working out again. "I'm back in the gym and ready to go."

    But make no mistake, she's not about to starve herself to return to a smaller size. Says Bertinelli: "I still like to eat – and I'm going to eat!"

    Was anyone putting a gun to her head when she was putting herself on magazine covers wearing a bikini and talking about how fabulous she is?

    C'mon, she has been in Hollywood long enough to know, you can't have one without the other. She can't get all the credit for losing the weight, and then crawl into a hole and say "leave me alone, it isn't FAIR!" when she puts it back on.

    I don't think anyone should be fat shamed per se, but I also don't think that as a society we should say it is ok to be overweight either.

    i'm with DD on this. I'm not the type to rip on people for stuff like this since it had zero impact on my life. But when you put yourself out there as much as she did when she lost weight, then people will mention it when you put weight back on.

    the people I know who were upset about Whitney Thompson winning ANTM were more perplexed because she was perceived as having a very ordinary face...she's no Maggie Brown or Emme or even Anna Nicole, but she's finding success as a "plus sized" model.... at size 10-12!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! so good for her

    exactly. why do these stars think they can have it both ways? you can't go out flaunting how great you look and then expect everyone to just turn thier heads if you're a slob.

    She was working for Jenny Craig, right? She was being paid to be out there.

    yeah and when Jared the Subway guy gained about 50 pounds everyone noticed that too........... and then he took the weight back off

    I'm sure Valerie will take the weight back off, she has the support of jenny craig and a personal trainer, so she should be OK. She should just recognize it for what it is....you put yourself out there as an inspiration, and if you fall off the wagon, you get back on...that's a good lesson too

    but you don't try to point the finger at anyone else for "fat shaming" you

    And that was her choice.

    No one put a gun to her head, she did the magazine covers, said look at me, and now that she has put the weight back on, she is saying don't look at me, you are fat shaming me.

    Sorry, have about zero sympathy for her.

    I just don't find her attractive...at all. Weight or not. Maybe that is what they too umbrage with?

    Edit:

    I Googled her while eating my lunch, and that's a horrible picture of her. She's a pretty lady.
